There wasn't a ton of movement in the power rankings this week, but there was certainly enough to keep things interesting. A special shoutout goes to Cardinal Newman's junior Jackson Pavitt, who scored six total touchdowns in the team's most recent match.
No Stoppin 'Em
Pittsburg was the big favorite in its game against Freedom last week, and for good reason. Pittsburg blew past Freedom 54 - 20. No one had a larger role in the success than senior Premier Murphy, who brought his A game into the contest. He earned two touchdowns and 139 yards rushing the ball. The combined 74-point effort made this the highest-scoring game in the power rankings for the week.
This Week's Big Showdown
The showdown between De La Salle (1st in the power rankings) and Monte Vista (9th) shaped up to be more of a takedown. The final score between De La Salle and Monte Vista was a 55 - 0 blowout in De La Salle's favor. Junior Shamar Garrett was a big part of the win as his strong performance led the charge (he ran for 171 yards and also punched in two touchdowns).
Next Week's Big Game
If you are itching to watch a first-rate contest, no game is supposed to fit the bill better than the one between Serra (7th in the power rankings) and Valley Christian (14th). Serra will be strutting in after a win while Valley Christian will be stumbling in from a defeat. Will Serra repeat its success, or will Valley Christian bounce back and dish team a loss? Check back after their contest Friday for the full scoop.
